My PC is running slow, what can I do to improve performance?
This is a common question and one that can have a number of different answers. The most likely cause can be applicaions loaded when Windows starts, some of theses can be found in the system tray as an icon. Other reasons can be background services, Windows updates, scheduled tasks, scans etc. Many of these issues can be solved and in some cases more memory can release new life into a low machine. These days Solid State hard drives are relatively cheap, swapping out your old mechanical hard drive and installing an SSD can dramitcally inprove the performance of your PC. Contact us to find out if we can help.
Is my PC is running out or memory because of my photos and music?
This is a common confusion people make between memory and disk space. Disk space contains files and folders and if too much is loaded (photo, music etc) on to the disk it will cause issues and become full. Memory is the space used to open programs, the more memory your PC has the more efficient and sometimes quicker it will be opening multiple programs.
In simplistic terms; Think of your filing cabinet as your hard drive and your desk as memory. The bigger the desk the more folders you can get out and open.
